On 15 July 2015 work at the UCL School of Pharmacy was featured in the BBC Two television series Trust Me, I’m a Doctor. The research group tested more than 70 commonly used food supplements. While herbal medical products registered under the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) scheme all contained the constituents as claimed, but many of the food supplements were found not to contain any relevant bioactive natural products. In other words, they do not contain what they claim to contain.
